Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

1 minute

We hope your family has a fun and relaxing holiday weekend. This may be your au pair's first Memorial Day, so make sure he or she has a great time and discovers what old-fashioned American barbecuing and relaxing is all about!

Whether you are going to a parade, the lake or beach or sticking close to home and spending time outside with friends, this official kick-off to summer and remembrance of our soldiers is a time of family and fun. 

One of our all-time favorite desserts that every mom has made at least once in their lifetimes is the Flag cake, covered in berries in the shape of the American flag. Whether you like the real cake kind or one made of the jello variety, this is a great treat to make your au pair and kids for some deserved sweet time!

Here is the old-fashioned cake kind recipe from Cafe Mom!

And if you like the jello cake better for those hot summer days, CookEatShare has a simple and fun recipe.

If your family and au pair are planning a fun weekend, don't forget to send pictures and stories to your Local Coordinator or directly to InterExchange Au Pair USA at: aupair@interexchange.org!
